Q. How do I narrow down results?

How to narrow down search results?

Is there a way to narrow results during a search?

I have too many results.


To shorten a results list, look for the limiters or search options area on the results page. Add options one by one to narrow your search and shorten the results list. Selecting "full-text only" can quickly shorten a list, as can choosing a subject or database. Consider narrowing the publication date range, too.
